After reading about interesting style of time management in household I got an idea how to apply it for the development process. “Fly housekeeper” - according to this style you not pay at once much time to keep your house clean. Instead house is being divided into several zones and for each zone separate day is assigned. So during a week you pay small amount of time 15-20 minutes each day to keep this zone clean. With such technique you may keep your house clean and pay just 15-20 minutes per day(but this is 2 hours per week!).
I believe most of developers have a hive of ideas in their heads, but it is always lack of time for their implementation. I want to apply the above technique with some modifications to one bee from my hive.
The idea I want to implement - this is create an open source tool to import files into Documentum repository. I do not have much time to work on it, but I will try to work one hour per day on it’s implementation, so during week this will be about a full working day. I will put a weekly progress report here which is also will be some kind of self-motivation for me.
